Is my best friends really my friends?! Please help me decide!

Is my best friends really my friends?! Please help me decide!

So long story short my best friend Halle became like besties with this girl Sara. I was fine with it and me and Sara became good friends last summer. Plus, Grace (one of Halle's friends) came into our friend group. We were all really close then this new girl Ashlyn came in and she seemed all sweet and innocent. For a few weeks I was fine with Ashlyn and then one day I saw all my friends and they completely changed! Halle said hi and gave me a hug but everyone else was glued to their phones and talking to Ashlyn like they've known her for years. None of them said hi or bye and none of them (except Halle) acknowledged me the whole time. This summer I've only seen Halle once and that's it! Ashlyn stole my friends and changed them. Please help!

Invite them round (try without Ashlynn so you can see if it's her that's affecting them) , to do something that you can't have phones for like swimming or biking. If they don't like that kind of stuff, what about baking? Something involved hands so you can't have phones ANYWHERE.

Ok, something like that has happened to me, my friend megan started handing out with new people, and she is calling me names and saying that im sefish and an idiot! We dont hang out much anymore but she is getting nicer!

but back to the point! If they are glued to their screens the whole time, text them about how you feel, they'll get the message (literally) and maybe they will talk to you about it, or you can tell your principal that your school should have a tech free day and See More▼

You should talk to your friends calmly about how you feel about them spending too much time with Ashlyn. They might understand and realise that she has changed them.
But if it is too late and they have already changed too much to go back to being themselves, then you should try your hardest to be nice to everyone around you so that people will want to be friends with you.
Then stick with the group of friends you have, but make new friends as well, and if you really don't like See More▼

So let me tell you a sad story: The exact thing happened to me. My best friend, let's just call her A, was my best friend (duh right?). I didn't think anyone would get between us ever. I had a lot of good friends too. So 8th grade comes around and this girl, L, came back to the school (there was a lot of drama around this girl and most of us were sure she would be problematic). First couple weeks I actually liked her! We became friends and did lots of girl talk but then very slowly See More▼

That's one of the shames in today's time, everyone's on their phones and iPods 24/7. I'd say take 'em away and break their devices, but that's vandalism so DON'T do that.
The only one that what it seems to be is that they could care less about devices and prefer to hang out with you seems to be Halle.

This girl, I used to be "friends" with bassicaly controlled her mother so she had unlimited talk and text, and made her mother get a iPod for her.
This girl, she could care less See More▼

Hmm... I never had a lot of friends but interrogate them but not so suspiciously and just ask (enter ? Here) other than that IDK
